Well if you are still wondering as to how the coffee got its name and want to know the story behind, here is it exclusively for you.
While you might be relishing your favourite civet coffee for years, you would hardly imagine the romantic story of its rich provenance that relates this coffee to the little civet. It happen so, the civet actually loves to eat the coffee cherries for its fleshy pulp. The cherries contain coffee beans. Now the pulp is eaten by the civet but beans remain intact. The beans while passing through the intestines of the little civet are imbued by the proteolytic enzymes, and as a result shorter peptides are made and free amino acids are released. The beans are defecated by the nocturnal mammal on the jungle floor from where these coffee beans are collected. The beans are then thoroughly washed, sundried, roasted, and brewed to give you that breathtaking taste and aroma.
Hope you enjoyed reading this amazing story!
